We are prepared to protect the interests of your corporation from violations of statutory requirements and standards, preserving the stability and value of your company.
Corporate governance consists of rules, processes and protocol that have been agreed upon in advance and in accordance with the applicable corporations codes. These guidelines and mandated requirements offer stability to the corporation, dictating how the company should be run and how disputes should be handled.
Governance is intended to provide clarity and direction to all stakeholders, including the board of directors, shareholders, management and employees. Strong corporate governance positively affects the firm’s perceived value in the market. Strict enforcement projects stability and can make it easier to raise capital and investment.
Common Examples of Corporate Governance Violations:
- Failure to comply with legal standards and requirements
- Unethical behavior
- Use of the corporation for personal gain
- Failure to differentiate between corporate and personal finances
- Lack of transparency
- Breach of fiduciary duty
Violation of corporate governance by any officer, director or member creates problems for all other shareholders and affects the value of the company. It must be dealt with proactively and aggressively to avoid legal issues for the company and to protect the interests of all other shareholders. GLG will work with the founding members of the corporate entity to plan and draft the governing documents and in suspected cases of non-compliance, will investigate any suspicions of corporate governance violation to determine what has occurred and provide a clear understanding of all legal options.
